If you asked me what vegetables are a Thanksgiving “must-have” side dish, I would say Brussels Sprouts every time. However, my family is pretty mixed on the appeal of Brussels Sprouts, so I’m fully aware that some people don’t like them. I keep trying though, and if you do happen to be one of those Brussels Sprouts avoiders I hope at least one of these Low-Carb Brussels Sprouts Recipes for a Thanksgiving Side Dish will look good enough to entice you to try it.
I promise you, Brussels Sprouts can be delicious when they’re prepared well. I am partial to roasted Brussels Sprouts myself, but other high-heat methods like pan frying can also produce good results. And of course there is cheese. The combination of Brussels Sprouts + cheese is pretty epic, which is why cheese is included in so many of these low-carb recipes withBrussels Sprouts. And personally I feel that a holiday like Thanksgiving is a time when you shouldn’t apologize for a dish that might be more indulgent than usual, do you agree?
I didn’t always have the appreciation for Brussels Sprouts that I do now, and the first recipe below is the very first Brussels Sprouts recipe to appear on Kalyn’s Kitchen and it’s the recipe that turned me into a Brussels Sprouts lover, so don’t miss that one. And if you’re a Brussels Sprouts fan like I am, look after the photos for even more ideas with Brussels Sprouts!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic, Parmesan, and Pine Nuts was the very first Brussels Sprouts recipe to ever appear on Kalyn’s Kitchen (back in 2007!) and thousands and thousands of people have made this for Thanksgiving. It’s even converted a few Brussels Sprouts avoiders to fans. For years I was scared to change out the original photo; check it out and see which you like best!
There’s going to be a recurring theme here of Brussels Sprouts + cheese, starting with these Baked Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese from White on Rice Couple. And yum!
Please don’t make me do it, but if I ever had to pick just one Brussels Sprouts recipe it would have to be this Easy Brussels Sprouts Gratin with Swiss and Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen. If you like Brussels Sprouts, this is a MUST-TRY!
My friend Lydia from The Perfect Pantry is not the biggest Brussels Sprouts fan, but her husband Ted swooned over this Warm Brussels Sprouts, Almond, and Goat Cheese Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing. And it definitely sounds good to me.
Even a few of the Brussels Sprouts avoiders in my family like this Low-Carb Brussels Sprouts Salad with Bacon, Almonds, and Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen. You can toss in a few dried cranberries as well if you’re making it for a Thanksgiving salad and don’t mind the extra carbs.

I’d say “Yes, please” to these Skillet Roasted Bacon Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce from Peace Love and Low Carb. And yes, that’s a lot of indulgent ingredients in the same recipe, but remember these are holiday dishes!
One last favorite that’s just SO good is these Shredded and Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds and Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen. This recipe could probably use new photos, but please don’t let that stop you from trying it!
